Halo 2 rakes in $125 million in one day

— 4:45 AM on November 11, 2004

Microsoft managed to sell 2.38 million copies of Halo 2 in the first 24 hours of the game's availability. The sequel's first day sales totaled $125 million, beating not only Microsoft's own sales predictions, but also the biggest Hollywood box office opening weekends. Not bad for a franchise that was originally destined for the Mac.
